Basis of Presentation
Our consolidated financial statements are prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP") and include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The Company has one reportable segment and presents the comparative periods on a consolidated basis to reflect the one reportable segment.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities. On an on-going basis, the Company evaluates its estimates, including significant estimates related to bad debts, intangible assets, income taxes, stock-based compensation, contingencies, litigation, valuation assumptions for impairment analysis, certain expense accruals, leases and, if applicable, purchase price allocations. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on various assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. We assessed these aforementioned estimates and judgments utilizing information reasonably available to us and considering the unknown future impacts of the novel coronavirus disease ("COVID-19") pandemic. The business and economic uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic has made such estimates and assumptions more difficult to calculate. While there was not a material impact to our key estimates as of and for the year ended December 31, 2021, our estimates may change based on the magnitude and duration of COVID-19, as well as other factors. Actual amounts and results may differ materially from these estimates.
Comprehensive Income (Loss)
Comprehensive income (loss) includes net income (loss) and certain items that are excluded from net income (loss) and recorded as a separate component of stockholders' equity. During the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company had no items of other comprehensive income (loss) and, therefore, comprehensive income (loss) does not differ from reported net income (loss).
